Grevillea ‘Coconut Ice’

A very easy care spreading medium sized shrub, growing to around 2 to 3  metres high and wide. Very similar to ‘Robyn Gordon’ but has cream and pink flowers rather than pure red. A great feature shrub, screen plant or for an informal hedge. It is frost hardy and quite drought tolerant once it is established, and like all grevilleas, attracts nectar loving birds. The foliage is slightly prickly, making this a very good nesting plant for smaller birds.
